Thompson did not say one word in his keynote address about the significant security benefits of ad blockers, which is ironic, because his paper was one of several news organizations that served its users ransomware—a particularly vicious form of malware that encrypts the contents of your computer and forces you to pay the perpetrators a ransom in bitcoin to unlock it—through its ad networks just a few months ago.

No, of course he didn't say anything about that. Hey Thompson, choke to death on your fucking ads.

Sweet fancy Moses...

That is just fucking pathetic. Go ahead and just leave your cars there, fellas. With the engine still running. Sigh

I'm amazed a few enterprising fellas didn't just drive off with those.

Blue, I just got a malicious website popup from malwarebytes as I loaded your page. p.algovid.com?

Just as a heads up.
What browser were you using?
I use ublock origin along with malwarebytes.
Of course right now I am on a customers comp that I maintain and it just has firefox with ublock, and norton av but w/out mbam.

Chrome with ublock Origin and malwarebytes, but ublock is turned off for Blue.

Patreon! Patreon!


I buy a LOT of shit on Amazon, and most of the time I remember to go through Blue's ad link.

Even so, it's scary warnings like that that make me hesitant about leaving Ublock off...

Pure coincidence. Like Hearthfire. Another coincidence.

Also: Elite Dangerous! A player-driven, emergent game! Then, when the players actually drive some cool-sounding emergent gameplay, we just turn shit off so it goes away.

Did they take a cut of the profits? They say they didnt. Do we believe them? Well I do, but people being people will believe malicious intent anyday over incompetence or lazyness.

Can they actually choose NOT to take a cut or something? When an item is sold on the Steam marketplace, Valve gets a cut. That's automatic, since I really doubt there's a guy sitting there slicing 8% off every transaction.

Now, if stuff ONLY ever got traded on the third party market, I see they wouldn't get a cut, but eventually someone would sell it on the Steam marketplace again, at which point Valve gets their cut again.

So... I'm gonna go with "They likely got money from it, indirectly."

It was fun enough for a while, but it never became any different. Apparently patch 1.6 introduces quests and other locations you can go to, which should be somewhat fun. I may play it a bit again.

Valve would have been happy to let this continue if people hadn't jumped on the 'hate train' (or more specifically, if the mainstream media hadn't started reporting on it). If these operations are against the user agreements, they could have sent out these 'notices' a long time ago if they wanted to.

Yeah, I pretty much agree with this. Now that there's a huge outcry over it, suddenly Valve is like "OMG THATS AGAINST TEH EULA!!" Before anyone know how shady this shit was, they were happily taking their cuts.

That said, if people want to pay real money for a box that has a chance for a gun skin for a fucking online shooter game where literally nobody will ever notice said gun skin since they're too busy getting shot or shooting you, then hey, more power to them.

Eh, my gas grill flames up when grease hits it too, so if that's all there is to it then I fail to see the argument. Plus those flames tend to charbroil your meat really fast, so if you have a lot of high flames, all you're doing is burning the shit out of your meat.

I think coal just gets a lot hotter, like they say, so sears the meat faster, thus retaining more juices. Great for when you want really juicy meats, not really much difference when you have more dry meats, or just prefer less juice in your steak/burger whatever.

Here's the big thing for me. I fire up my gas grill, and 5 minutes later I'm cooking.

Does coal taste better? Eh. I guess if I was to put them side by side, I could probably taste it. Is that enough for me to offset the hassle of pouring the coal, lighting it, waiting 30 minutes and then spreading them around before grilling? Not to me. YMMV.

21:9 is dumb because it's too fucking short.

But... but... it's just as tall as a 16:9 monitor? (relatively)

Thus the ratio 16:9 -- 21:9...

I guess they don't look as "cool" as widescreen, but I do kinda miss the 4:3 days...

Actually, they used "21:9" because it sounds cooler to consumers than "7:3". Bigger numbers == better, right? RIGHT?!

4K HOMIE! (Rather than 2160p)

Not great so far outside of some Sennheiser headphones but certainly better than last years "diapers and phone charger salezzz!" affair

Nah. Doesn't beat last year's "drum of industrial lube."

I still have that drum. Getting kinda low though. Was hoping they'd have it on sale again, but no such luck... :-blink-: :-blink-:

So I just bought two new kindles instead.
